Francis Barber is a good PRU with many outstanding features. We have a wide variety of pupils on roll including pupils who are excluded or dual registered, those undergoing statutory assessment or have an EHCP. Many of the pupils have faced challenges within mainstream schools. Some continue to be challenging within the PRU but there is a strong staff team helping the young people to manage their behaviour within a supportive and caring school-like environment.
If you enjoy working with young people, have initiative and are a good team player we would welcome your application. Within this setting there is scope for further leadership opportunities for a highly experienced candidate.
